There is NO version in which the mix, and the playing, are more completely in sync than the first 3 min of 2-11-69, the comm release. Listen to how tight the boys are in that one...then you can turn it off or skip ahead, but you'll find no better jam of the intro sequence than on that one...Family members brought this to my attn; and they're right.

We've spoken before about how 2/11 is a personal favorite for many of us, but I never gave the Lovelight that much attention. I know it's been YEARS since I gave it a listen. Disc 1, while full of great music, never got as much play as disc 2 with me. I'm gonna have to check that out.

Focus esp on the "main/post first verse singing" @ ~ 2' mark or so; they are so amazingly tight/synch'd to one another, I've NEVER heard another in which they all play right on top of one another with perfectly sonic gaps (silence, for a millisecond) right where they should be if you follow me...

The definition of "tight" for the boys, if you ask me.

Merry, Merry, Jim!
